The New iPad

Did anyone who reads this blog think I could resist ordering the new iPad? It’s becoming more like a real computer. It’s already several unique musical instruments and I’m sure with more power we will see more audio innovation. For anyone just getting an iPad for the first time here’s a small selection of a few extra fun music apps to get you going: SoundyThingy, FunkBox, SynthX, The Badlion’s Garage Synth, SoundPrism, SampleWiz, sir Sampleton, Polychord, ZX Plectrum, abcdefg, Moog Filatron, Voicejam, LaDiDa and Scanner911.

“The A5X chip with quad-core graphics drives four times the pixels of iPad 2 yet it delivers the same smoothness and fluidity iPad is known for.” –

  1. Hold on. Did you own an iPad 2? If so, what would drive you so fast to the New iPad?

    I have a 2. It’s noticeably faster than the 1 (though the difference is not radical), a little bit slimmer. Since I sold the 1 I subsidized the purchase of the 2. I can probably sell the 2 but I’m wondering just what the 3 will get me, musically, that’ll make a difference.

    The display would be a pleasure, undoubtedly, but is this feature worth another few hundred dollars within a 12-month time-span (I always get the 64gig version)? It’s not going to make a big difference for me in my music apps. If the processor were much, much faster, then I’d give it a second thought.

    1. I only have the original iPad 1. I agree I’m not sure iPad 2 users “need” to upgrade. Even my iPad 1 runs fine… I know someone who’s going to be happy to get it so that helps too.

  2. i bought an ipad 2 in december and after seeing the new features i think i’m fine. like Miguel said musically it’s not gonna make a difference but for the new users it’s great
